The Cloak of Darkness (John 3:18-21)

"He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God."  John 3:18-21

My car was broken into... once.  While I was helping a friend move.  Do you think it happened in a crowded parking lot at high-noon?  OF COURSE NOT!  It happened after the sun went to bed and no one was around. 

What do you do when no one is looking?  What do you watch?  What do you look at?  What do you read?  What do you allow yourself to focus on?  Here's a frightening truth about the human condition:

Who you are when you are alone is the "real you".

Jesus, fortunately, wants to fix the "real you".  He has a plan to make you more like Him (a big word called sanctification).  Jesus is THE LIGHT... come to Him and let Him heal, fix, or otherwise sanctify you.
